Will I Be Able To Overclock My Nvidia GTX670M In Asus G75VW ? If So, Please Tell Me How. And Is It Safe To Overclock, What I Mean By That Is Will It Overheat Or Crash And I'll Be Using My G75 For 4+ Years, So Will Overclocking Make It Not Last Longer ? And Does Overclocking Really Boost GPU Perfomance ? Is There Any Way To Overclock CPU Also It Is A 3610QM. One More Question, Its Only Been 3 Days Since I Brought My G75 And It Started Heating Up (When Doing Simple Tasks) Inbetween The Numpad And Keyboard. Is This Normal ? I Just Asked Because I Have Heard That The Cooling System In The G75 Is The Best.

Thanks In Advance.

I have a slight bit of heat in the same spot... I wouldn't worry about it unless it's an abnormal amount...

OC'ing is safe as long as you do it in small increments and run furmark or play a game with those settings and watch temps if you get artifacts or it crashes you went to high
Overclocking does help the GPU, helped mine a lot and it does produce a little more heat but my max has been 56-58 celsius while playing games

But your CPU should be fine, I don't think there is a need to OC it

Yea GPU can be easily overclocked by either using MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision X or Nvidia Inspector.. They are all based on RivaTuner so its up to you what you wanna use..
Ideally you should test by putting up the frequency by 20 and give it a run on Uniengine Heaven. See how it performs, any heat etc.. If you notice excessive heat or artifacts then you know you have reached the limit and should use a lower frequency.
Every card is different but generally the 670M's should be able to hit 750/1650mhz stable.. and for benching some people have put it to 800/1750 which is very very high OC. I personally play pretty much all my games at 740/1650 and it runs very smooth with no issues, just a little bit more heat but nothing harmful in any way.

You can OC CPU but its not recommended.. I have used it and it works fine on my system. Set it to 2.4 - 3.4 GHZ and it performed like a beast :) for CPU intensive games. CPU + GPU OC gave me around +30fps in planetside 2, huge difference and absolutley no excessive heat on the CPU, although i did notice GPU was getting hotter than usual ( 77degrees ).
But the only issue with using the Intel extreme tuning utility is that some people have reported problems with its fails safe. For example if your system has a BSOD or just crashes and ends up restarting with your CPU OC'd, it will alter your bios and the OC setting will become stock, no way to reduce the mhz. so becareful with that.

Can't you just reflash the bios if this happens?

11-30-2012, 05:24 PM
Well, not exactly since in some cases it will not boot at all. My advice, just use the CPU&RAM stock. There must be a reason why Asus never put the Performance option in BIOS itself, like in G55. And I guess is just that, it won't boot in some scenarios. Also seems like reset is not an option as well.

Some G75s do not have the best thermal paste and heat can be an issue. Do a Furmark benchmark and post the numbers. For one run only it will be safe. DO NOT use it daily.

For 670M OC use Nvidia Inspector. Best tool for the job.

Hello Thread Viewer. I Successfully Overclocked My G75 To 750Mhz And 1650Mhz. Heat 20 -30 degrees Celsius And When Video Rendering (Adobe Premiere Elements CS6) And Gaming 50 - 60 degrees celsius - System Was Stable And When I Ran Ungine Heaven With Everything At High Exept For 3D I Got A Score Of 754 Celsius. Battlefield 3 Ultra 1920x1080 I Got 50 - 60fps (Unbelievable But True). I Coild Also Play Battlefield Bad Company At Everything High With 3D And Got 30+fps. This Machine Is Truly A BEAST. Love My Beast.

SPECIAL THANKS TO 1m04t41, Sqnkov,mrwolf,lilfoot95,c_man And Bnaughty. These Good People Helped Me Alot ! Thanks Guys. And If You Guys Play TF2 Add Me - GAMER-X-1999 .

Ah good to hear how it all worked out :)

By the way since you seem to be an avid first person shooter player and like battlefield 3 so much. Check this out :D you will not regret entering this mmo ! most addictive fps ive ever played so far, it will make you forget alll about battlefield my friend..

It plays amazingly well on the G75 but still kinda makes you feel like the beast is not such a beaast :P lol the game is heavvvily heavvily CPU and GPU intensive but is still being optimized.

mrwolf
12-05-2012, 05:57 PM
lol, Agenblaze: Artifacts are more likley caused by memory clocks.. Your memory clock of 1800 is wayyyy to high man ! You should put it to 740/1650 and leave it at that...

c_man
12-05-2012, 06:25 PM
Yep, why so high?

I'm still happy camper with 755/1650. And I think 1700 was the best I got on memory and 800 on GPU, stock BIOS.

You guys stop playing around with XTU. I think 105 is a good value. RAM can also be pushed a little. But you do this at your own risk.

Some Video Cards On Some G75's Can Be Overclocked To 850Mhz. When I Did 850Mhz Artifacts Showed Up During Gameplay. I Would Recommend 1655/750. If Your Temperatures Are Normal And Of The System Is Stable, Your Overclock Is Safe.

Someone can guide me step by step to overlock please

first what are your current temperatures when you game?

then get MSI Afterburner :D

or, you can monitor your temps with MSI Afterburner while ingame. with the osd stuff...

the overclockig part is easy :) slide the sliders of

Core Clock (Mhz) try 700Mhz and see if it works :) then slightly increase it by increments of 10Mhz 710 mhz -> 720mhz and so on.

and

Memory clock (Mhz) start at 1600 Mhz then increase in increments as ou see is fit for temperatures and stability.

I personally OC mine to

Core clock: 750Mhz
Memory Clock 1700Mhz

at temps max at 65 Celsius in Battlefield 4

and Diablo 3 max69 Celsius on 4 hour plus games :P

and I have repasted mine plus there is a "hole" beneath my GPU fan for cooler perfomance :P

i know what you mean about that hole.

I removed bottom cover just to test the temps, i was getting 5 to 10 Celsius difference, room temperature plays a big part also. i understand the design and how the airflow works in the laptop. the small openings above the actual GPU suck air and if u put your hand you can feel it specially when pushing the gpu to the max but for some reason giving the fan straight access to air from the bottom makes a big difference. Anyway in september i'll be having my g75vw for 2 years and it will be time to repast this beast.

Any advice on what brand of paste is the best for this laptop? I'm thinking of the Arctic Silver 5 ?!!?!?!

Thanks in advance.

I recommend the Arctic MX-4, since there is no cure time. it is non-conductive and does not degrade ovetime.
and some Thermal pads. 1mm and 1.5mm thickness for the VRM's and Memory chips.

but some just drop blobs of Thermal paste on the VRM's and the Memory Chips. and they work fine.

I've used the Arctic silver 5 before, on the Memory, VRM's. but then I feared that it might kill my laptop since it is conductive to some degree.
then repasted it with the Arctic MX-4 :)

I am going to repaste in late june when the warranty expires and a have a couple of questions:
Are the 1,5mm pads supposed to go on the VRM's and the 1,0mm pads on the Memory chips?
Also, I was curious which brand of thermal pads you had been using. The only one I can find in Sweden are called "Phobya thermal pad XT" with a thermal conductivity of 7W/mk.
Would these Phobya pads be sufficient to keep the chips cool?
http://www.webhallen.com/se-sv/datorkomponenter/188365-phobya_thermal_pad_xt_1x120x20
I want to prolong the machines life as much as possible, therefor I want the best cooling pads I can find. :o

SpasTaz0917
04-09-2014, 11:43 PM
I used these EK thermal pads
http://www.coolerkit.se/shop/thermalpads-274c1.html

They were a bit stiff. And "only" has (3-5W/mk)

The phobia sounds interesting. Might order a few for future use :)


As for which thickness goes were:
Simply said: Trial and error.
And I don't remember. Just snuck them where they might fit. And when, there were small gaps I applied some thermal paste on top of the thermal pads :)
But first priority was having the GPU touch the heatsink.
Since the EK thermal pads are a bit stiff.
Not like the original Silicone stuff that just melts on. (Still not sure if it's supposed to be like that)
But took forever to cleanse all the blue gunk.

One of the VRM's gets really hot anyways... Up to 90 Celcius.
Not sure if it was a misplaced thermal pad... But i have dissasembled the whole thing to check if it was.
But all the pads were fine. And I haven't checked the VRM temps before repasting. So it probably is normal :) (usually VRM's have high heat tolerance usually 110+ Celcius. Depending on the quality of the VRM)

I used/use HWinfo for temperature and fan monitoring.
But MSI afterburner for ingame temp monitoring.
